Bush Catches a Break

Posted by Mike on December 12, 2006

With his base disgruntled, his haters motivated and his election defeat still fresh in everyone’s mind, it’s safe to say that President Bush has seen better days. In fact, things are so bad that he even started taking military advice from a commission which included Sandra Day O’Connor and Vernon Jordan. One has to wonder if Barney still supports the President?

It has indeed been a tough couple of months, but fortune smiled on our 43rd President yesterday when outgoing world dictator in his own mind Kofi Annan took a final swipe at our President in his farewell remarks as Secretary General. Annan essentially accused the President of abandoning American ideals in the War on Terror. According to the demented bastard, the decision to use force against another nation is the right thing to do only when it is “for broadly shared aims, in accordance with broadly accepted norms.” He’s basically pissy because Bush didn’t take a global test when protecting American security interests.

This is a big break for the President. The person condemning him for not “doing the right thing” is the same person who apparently thought “the right thing” was to oversee the Iraqi oil for food scandal, overspend the kickbacks on his son’s Mercedes and overlook genocide around the world.  As Secretary General, Annan repeatedly failed to use his bully pulpit to condemn evil in the world; however, he had no problem whining about the civilized world’s repsonse to it.

It is often said that people are judged by the company they keep. In this case, the President will be judged by the enemies he made. When Kofi Annan accuses you of failing to do the right thing, chances are you’re doing something right.

    I am all about knocking Kofi Annan! He is quite a two-faced soft-spoken jerk, in the final analysis. He comes off as very disarming and gentle, yet he’s perfectly fine with those points that Gauvin brings up about dictators, genocide, famine and other forms of mass murder. He will be remembered as a great appeaser who gave undue guilt trips to the wrong nations and peoples. That Kofi knocked Bush is, indeed, a badge Bush should wear proudly!
